Hi charlane, welcome...I would say that is an unreasonable amount. Do you have insurance? The last price quote I recieved was approximately $1,200.00 for the infusion.
I really don't understand where this price is coming from. Is the infusion center or hospital quoting this or someone else? If you could let me know that would help. If you don't have insurance and are paying the retail price, it still shouldn't be that high.
If you could elaborate on who gave you this price it might help...
To all, I also received the Reclast infusion, it was done in the hospital chemo room setting. My FEP BC/BS paid 3367.00 for the Reclast prescription for this. I called them to say although I didn't have to pay this amount I thought it was an outrageous amount and were they checking into it. They informed me that I received 5 units (at least that's the way it was coded and billed) and that the 800.00+ per unit was normal. I still do not consider this normal for a charge and think it is just another case of all of us being ripped off by drug companies and insurance companies.
